    Re: i want to go umrah never been before

    First you have to decide what your budget is ?

    How much are you prepared to walk ?

    How long are you prepared to go for and dates you wish to travel ?

    Get recommendations from friends and family who have travelled with groups. At this stage I would say make sure you get recommendations from people who have travelled with families or parents as feedback from a singlr traveller may have met their needs. For example if I were to go alone with a group I couldn't care less about distance to haram or quality of accommodation.

      main thing that is important is the distance because of my mother id like to be as close as possible

      my cousin works at a umrah hajj place in london and he said he'll give me some prices on tuesday next week
      but he mentioned to me hilton covention or marriot in makkah and pullman zam zam or millenium aqeeq in madinah as good hotels

      ideally id like to go for two weeks :insha:

        Hilton Convention is on a slightly steep walk . It's fine for young people though . If distance is priority here , then perhaps millennium hotels ( the old Hilton makkah , or old hilton tower ) would be best or even hilton suites .
        Pull Man zam zam in madina is a nice hotel but far from ladies entrance . Millennium aqeeq on the map seems a better location.

          Agree Millenium hotels would be better option for Madinah Al Aqeeq or Grand Majlis is better option and Al Haram Hotel along with Dallah Taibah as they are close to womens entrance

              Re: i want to go umrah never been before

              Like you mentioned it's your first time so I would strongly recommend a group

              There's agents out there who sell you a package but beware because their 5 star hotel might be Dar Al Eiman in Makkah and it's not close by any means (not for me anyway) and Marriott in Madinah

              You will then have agents offering Pullman in Makkah and Madinah whilst both are close I believe it will be an extra walk for your mother in Madinah

              And finally you have agents who will offer the Anjum Hotel in their tour which I've read mixed reviews about when it comes to distance

                  A lot of reputable agents have websites and Facebook pages set up where they advertise their package have a look. Just because a certain agent might pop up first in the Google search engine doesn't mean to say they are reputable, you still do your due diligence ��������

                    Alhamdulilah, happy for you.

                    Do consider the questions like Akhi Deenie Man mentioned.
                    Do browse around the net and forum for tips and guides, they are in abudance. December is the much cooler season I believe compared to other months.
                    But the crowd is also more as its the holidays I believe for some countries.

                    I have made a thread before but the tips were mostly for month of Ramadhan, but if you want you can read it up too, it may still be relevant in some way.
                    There is akhi Ismail also, he can help you out with the questions.

                    It'll be a good experience inshaAllah,
                    By the way I kind of remembered you are married, not bringing your wife along akhi? (correct me if im wrong)

                            I will recommend Al-hidaayah who I have used in the past...when I went during Ramadan with my wife and 18 month daughter.

                            I paid top dollar for it but for that the service was excellent. Transport provided was always on time even from the airport it was waiting for us.

                            When we arrived at the hotels one of the group leaders were already there with the keys for the rooms and no waiting around in the lobby for it. The group leaders were always on hand to assist on any request (within reason lol)

                            At the end of the day it depends on your expectations. I'm a pretty impatient person and hate it when things are not organised. I understand things can go wrong but would always expect the group leader to have a plan B and C

                            All depends on ones expectations tbh

                              Have you decided which airport you want to fly from ?
